That was my lunch. On to dinner:
I bought red quinoa (about $5) today because of my goal to not eat wheat or rice (however I'll probably eat some tomorrow since I'm eating out with friends) but eating a cup of quinoa probably defeats the purpose of that. I also ate veggies but they steamed a lot faster than the quinoa cooked (duh) so I ate that first. My mum recommended quinoa to me and I know I like it. Too much. Good lord, I can't cook anything or buy anything in large quantities. A cup of quinoa is four servings. I ate all of it with varyin degrees of seasoning (plain, with oil and sauce, with oil and another sauce) and I know I could've eaten all of it plain. It's good, has a nice texture to it and cooks very quickly compared to similar foods, such as rice.
Quinoa gets a big thumbs up. But next time I have to make less. :(
I think I ate a million calories today:
- two eggs
- one cup of quinoa
- three navel oranges
- one persimmon
- a 6 ounce bag of spiced taro chips
- a bunch of some green veggie (twice of what's pictured here)
- some of my roommate's low-fat no sugar ice cream that could probably kill someone from it's lack of real food-ness
Seriously, I need to buy my own ice cream just so I don't eat that crap. I AM SO BAD AT CONTROLLING MYSELF! Isn't that a problem? A mental one? Of course I have a mental problem. I'm crazy.
So overall I didn't eat anything very bad besides the chips (I put sauce on the veggies and quinoa but I don't think it amounts to much. Also ingested OLIVE OIL, but that's good fat, mm), I just eat a whole lot. I took a nap today for god's sake. Now I have to cram for my test tomorrow.
